EMIGRATION AND EXPORTS TO CALIFORNIA. As a record of the movement to California within the past quarter, we present statements of the vessels and passengers that have gone from ports of the United States within the months of December and January, and also of the supplies, merchandise, &c., shipped within the same period from New York. The perfect accuracy of these statements we do not vouch for. They are from the N.Y. Herald and the Tribune, and are probably near the truth; but still they only partially exhibit the rush of adventurers to the Pacific coast in search of gold. Thousands besides have gone by different routes, and from other countries.

On a subsequent page we have given some account of our new possessions in the west, and of the routes to them. List of vessels which have sailed from various ports of the United States

to Chagres and other ports, for California, since Dec. 7, 1848.-(Herald.) Vessels. Passengers. Where from.

CALIFORNIA EXPORTS. We have been greatly edified concerning the character of the supplies taken out to the gold region by emigrants from this port, by the following table, which we copy from the Dry Goods Reporter. We know not whether the goods were selected according to the wants of the gold hunters, or the expected demand of residents in California, but certainly the proportionate amount of different articles taken is curious, if not characteristic. Thus, it will be seen that 819 barrels of rum, and 601 of brandy, were taken, and seven packages of books !_873 gold washers, and 47 ploughs—1 case of musical instruments, and 254 packages of medicine—38 boxes of pipes, and 3 hogsheads, 17 bales, and 992 packages of tobacco-4 cases of umbrellas, and 24 casks of crucibles_21 frames of houses, and 64 packages of clocks. But here is the list, embracing the exports to California from this port, from Dec. 1, 1848, to Feb. 1, 1849:-(N. Y. Tribune.) Fish, dried pkgs 567, Carts and wagons
